The meeting was held at the Washtenaw County Library and was called to order at 2:15 p.m. by Mr. Barr, who distributed an agenda. The Board waived notice of time, place and subject of the meeting.

The minutes of the meeting of January 5, 1997 were approved.

The HVCN financial report for the period ending January 31, 1997, posted by e-mail by the Treasurer, was approved by the Board.

Mr. Barr reported he was working on compiling a database of contributors to local charitable organizations. Karen Cline is assisting him.

Mr. Weiss reported he set up an HVCN BackTalk conference on the environment. He noted he added to the HVCN web site a Transportation InfoCenter and a Recreation InfoCenter (which included arts and entertainment). He welcomed suggestions on revising the topical organization. Mr. Weiss has continued to edit and tweak information in other InfoCenters as well. Mr. Weiss reported he had contacts with a number of people who might serve as HVCN volunteers. Mr. Weiss visited the Pittsfield Township Parks and Recreation Department and converted the Pagemaker-formatted winter recreation brochure into HTML files. He set up two web pages--one for Pittsfield Township and one for the Pittsfield Township Parks and Recreation Department. The goal was to put on a demonstration for Pittsfield Township representatives. The demo was scheduled, canceled, and needs to be rescheduled. Mr. Weiss said he perceived the need for more HVCN board members.

Mr. Barr reported he talked to one of Joan Durrance’s UM School of Information classes. He said he asked for volunteers to work on the Pittsfield Township pages. Mr. Barr and Mr. Weiss talked about HVCN at a student chapter meeting of the Association for Computing Machinery at the University of Michigan. Mr. Barr said he received a request for HVCN to host a web site for the Ann Arbor Caged Bird Club.

The next meeting was scheduled for Sunday, March 9, 1997 at 2:00 p.m. at the Washtenaw County Library.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:00 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Keith Stanger, Secretary
